NEW TO THE CONFERENCE: PATHABLE!
pathable linkPathable, an online social media application, is a new feature we’re proud to announce designed specifically for the 38th Conference on Broadcast Meteorology! Pathable was created to allow attendees to design their own profile, link other social networking sites to their profile, communicate with other attendees via conversations and private messages, as well as see which attendees with whom they have the most in common (via categories and tags). Pathable also lets each attendee design their own session schedule and invite other attendees to private meetings. You can also visit our sponsors for the conference via their own Pathable connection!

This new feature is included in your conference registration fee, so once you’ve registered; you will receive an invite from Pathable to join the community. Please adjust your spam filters to accept email from mailer@pathable.com to take advantage of this new feature. Remember, it’s up to you how much or how little you share, so feel free to customize your own Broadcast Conference Pathable experience!
